Get Guidance for Homesteading and Survival from a Classic

While reading through an issue of “Backwoods Home Magazine,” I came across a couple of recommendations saying interested readers should get a copy of The “Have More” Plan, by Ed and Carolyn Robinson.

This is a short 72 page paperback, published by Storey Publishing, a well known publisher of rural living books. If you’re homesteading or considering getting back to more basic, self reliant living, you’ll want this book.

A description of the book and its authors sums things up nicely.

“This 60-year-old back-to-the-land classic shows how to find land, build a homestead, grow vegetables and fruits, raise livestock, build farm structures, and more.

“It has been Ed and Carolyn Robinson’s dream that every family can own a home and a little land. Their classic book, The “Have-More” Plan, was written in the 1940’s. The book has been kept in print unchanged because it is still, after 50 years, a useful reference for the home gardener. Over 500,000 people have now discovered how to do things in ways that work simply and well.

“Ed said, ‘…poultry, goats, lettuce, and home canning haven’t changed much in the generation since The “Have-More” Plan was first published. Today home gardening seems on the verge of a giant step forward: We can now get more produce on small plots by using plastic cover-ups over raised beds to extend growing seasons. This ushers in a new era for home production.'”
